Knicks Loss Shooting Guard for 6 Weeks
On Friday, the New York Knicks
announced that newly acquired shooting guard Ronnie Brewer
left knee surgery
and will be out for six weeks. The procedure was done by Knicks orthopedic surgeon
Dr. Answorth Allen.
Brewer was in high spirits though after the surgery Friday, as he was able to send out a tweet to his followers,
“If y’all haven’t already heard I had successful meniscus surgery. Started rehab this morning. Minor setback for a major comeback. I appreciate the prayers and get well soons from everyone. Much appreciated. Will for sure be 100 (percent) for season opener.”
The time table given by the doctors is right in line with Brewers
tweet, as the Knicks start camp in 25 days and have their regular season
opener in 8 weeks, meaning the 6 week timetable will give Brewer two weeks of preseason to get into shape.
The Knicks say that Brewer suffered the medial meniscus
tear in the past two weeks, but cannot pinpoint a specific incident that caused the injury. Brewer’s agent, Henry Thomas
, gave some insight saying that the injury occurred from “wear and tear over time.”
